The republicans need to change their stance on gay marriage and fast because they will lose a large portion of the young vote.
    Screw catering to the young vote. The role in life you play when you're young is to sit back and learn. You don't get to decide the direction of the Republican Party.

    If young straight men are in favor of gay marriage, it just makes me question how soft your generation is.

    Go vote for the democrats if you don't like the Republican platform

    Yes if only we could go back to those days when people were moral in America. You know back when we stayed married and commited wholesale genocide against Native Americans. Back to those days when we didn't tolerate gays and enslaved an entire race of people. Back to those days when people waited until they were married before they had sex and we had children working in sweatshops and Jim Crow...

    By any measure, we are a more moral and just society today than we have been at anytime in human history. The immoral actions in our society today pale in comparison to what was common place in the past.

    And if the Republicans want to maintain power, they'll have to shift their platform in order to keep these people from voting for democrats.

    For those too young to know I lived in times where blacks could not drink from the same water fountain as me and there were signs posted above the water fountains declaring this. We went on vacations and "WHITES ONLY" were on gas station washrooms everywhere. Everyone littered and litter sometimes was every where. picnic areas were often pig sties of litter.
    Times change and will continue to change as long as there is time. When I am with a black man my age at work or home and we see young people of all races just doing anything we share a moment knowing this was not possible when we were young.

    Republicans got rid of slavery and segregation

    Of course you do, do you really expect YOU would think of your own views as ignorant?
